Shinji IKARI

Shinji is the pilot of Evangelion Unit 01. Deeply disturbed, he often attempts to run from his problems. Despite this, he has unusually high synch rates with Unit 01, even when he is forced to pilot it with no previous training. Shinji's mother died when he was very young, leaving him with his father, Gendo Ikari. Due to feelings of abandonment as a young child and Gendo's very cold demeanor, Shinji feels a certain amount of malice towards his dad. Fighting his inner demons, he also is very impacted by Gendo's occasional praise and continually seeks his acceptance.

i understand most people wont hop in a fucking humongous robot at first touch so i dont complain about that. Its just he acts like a self absorbed baby for the whole series. He might be cowardly but i can take that. But hes so self absorbed and whi ny. Asuka has more balls then him

it's funny... I actually think shinji is one of the best written characters of all time but he really is a basebreaker.

the truth is, shinji is what keeps the story grounded in reality and makes it succeed so well as a deconstruction and makes him a basebreaker. because it's not as simple as 'getting over' these issues. he faces these same issues again and again, in different ways and with little support. it's the breakdown of a person under these pressures.

i will say, 'get in the robot' meme doesn't make sense because he gets in it right away. it's just that it's not what he wants to do

I love shinji, he doesn't deserve all the hate. He's a very realistic character, and just because he's whiny and annoying doesn't make him bad. remember he's fourteen and has Tokyo counting on him to protect them from these monsters called angels. (:
